by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Ich wollte, meine Lieder
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Ich wollte, meine Lieder
Das wären Blümelein:
Ich schickte sie zu riechen
Der Herzallerliebsten mein.

Ich wollte, meine Lieder
Das wären Küsse fein:
Ich schickt sie heimlich alle
Nach Liebchens Wängelein.

Ich wollte, meine Lieder
Das wären Erbsen klein:
Ich kocht eine Erbsensuppe,
Die sollte köstlich sein.

M. White sets stanzas 1-2
